Its good for small spaces, but it's not something that will rattle anything
6 August 2012
Summary: I bought this 2.1 system for its small footprint and Logitech's reputation. The sound is decent at the most, especially for the price compared to what some other brands offer. I can not give them a bad rating, but I can't really give them a great one either. If you're looking for a compact 2.1 system for a small area with DECENT sound you will not be disappointed, but if you're looking for good sound, I'd say look up a notch higher on Logitech's line-up.
Summary: Sound cracks and breaks up when I adjust volume. Sound is of fair quality. If looking to just have speakers for basic computer sounds it is just fine, but for anything more than that get something else.
Pleasing sound for the price but annoying background hum

Summary: These produce a pleasing sound (may require playing with equalizer settings to get adequate mid-range) but if electronic humming noises bother you these will drive you nuts. I find I must power them off when not actively using them as the hum is distracting. While listening to music the hum isn't noticeable. Other reviewers have noted this so I don't think it's a defect with mine; it's a design flaw. The extra "ipod dock" is a silly design.
Summary: I brought this unit to replace my fm transmitter in my office. It is a %100 better sound as compared to the sound from the transmitter. I like the rich bass (a being a bass player)from the sub woofer. The two stereo speakers are a little anemic. Plus I think the unit should be able to charge the ipod at the same time. All in all it is perfect for my office.
Summary: Odd... well, one would think a product released later with a higher model number would be better. Apparently, that rule does not apply here. Sneaky marketing? I also own the X-230 and I was very impressed with it, considering they're 2.1 speakers. The X-230 actually feels like surround sound. However, I can't say the same about the X-240's. The X-240 just sounds like what one would usually expect from 2.1 speakers.
Summary: In the past three years I have purchased four Logitech speaker sets. The X-220, Z-3i, X-530 and now the X-240. I have also listened to the X-230. I would have to say that of all of these the X-240 is the least satisfying. Due to having a smaller woofer enclosure (I find it hard to call any of these things sub-woofers), It doesn't seem to have the thump-ability of the others that some people like.
Summary: This speaker set is indeed a sleek looking, fine sounding option for listening to music on computer. The sound isn't as rich as the $30 Harmon Kardon's I got with my standard issue Dell desktop in 1999 which finally gave out this summer, but it is adequate. I may need to play with the settings on my computer, perhaps, but I was surprised that in 8 years the sound quality couldn't be somewhat more improved.
